Paving, parades, construction prompt weekend bus reroutes, plus Stadium Station escalator and elevator closures
Paving, parades, and construction have transit buses in Metro Vancouver on reroutes this weekend, plus Stadium-Chinatown Station will see an escalator & elevator closure on Saturday night/Sunday morning.
Saturday, May 23 marks the Hyack Festival; routes #101, 154, 155, 106 and 123 will be rerouted around the parade route.
Route #8 will also be re-routed in both directions on Saturday, May 23. #8 will divert from Fraser St, omitting 41st to 49th and will use Main Street instead. This is due to the South Hill Neighborhood Festival.
On Sunday, May 24, Ladner Pioneer Days will cause re-routes for #601 in both directions and C86 around the area of 48th, Ladner Trunk Rd, to Memorial Park.
Also on Sunday May 24, paving will commence both directions on either side of the Granville Bridge (here’s the project page from the City of Vancouver). Both the East and West Cloverleaf will be closed; also southbound Granville to westbound Broadway will be closed. Trolley Routes #4, #7, #16, #17 will detour from the area and CMBC will be using diesel buses on these routes. #50 will also all detour from the area.
Road construction will also be on going westbound on Hastings at Homer; the following routes will be on re-route until further notice, #3, #8, #135, #160, and #190.
And last, due to BC Hydro electrical system improvements, escalators and elevators will be out of service at Stadium-Chinatown Station between 8pm on Saturday, May 23 and 8am on Sunday May 24.
Those who are unable to use the stairs are asked to get off SkyTrain at Main Street Station and either contact a SkyTrain Attendant or use the security phone on the platform to call for assistance.
We apologize for any inconvenience while BC Hydro performs this necessary work.
